Linebackers don't matter with a DL and secondary like this right?

This is completely unimportant. NJ isn't a top 5 state, but it may be almost top 10. There is generally top-end talent but it lacks depth of the elite states.

Everybody realizes that CFP Committee members are not to participate when a school they have significant ties to is being discussed or voted on right? Still a prestigious post for a Michigan man is by no means a negative!
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Not long ago Leonard Williams||
Not long ago Leonard Williams was the 6th pick in the NFL Draft and was even higher on most of the "Big Boards". USC doesn't struggle to produce NFL talent anywhere, they just haven't had a complete and consistent team since Pete Carroll left.

Because it said 2016, I was expecting a projection of next year. I like these graphics a lot, but I'm also ready to put 2015 away and look ahead to this coming September.

His defense described as "organized chaos" by the Washington Post according to Wikipedia. Only concern is that of his 33 years in coaching, only 2 came outside of New England (Maryland 09-10). National recruiting may not be his strong suit.

They're FG kicking game has been an absolute tire fire

I'd rather not have one rival in the Playoff and the other in the Rose Bowl. We Are Iowa (for a week).

This. You have to respect his sacrifice, but dude has no money problems

I think 34-17-ish is more likely but I applaud your reasonable take

Feel bad for you if you don't get tingly feelings watching Steph Curry heat up or the Spurs ball movement make music or Anthony Davis do all manner of freak things. Oh well

Cool story bro I know... But I played freshman Denard (when he was a relative nobody other than the one magical TD) in NCAA Football when visiting UM as a high school senior.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||A more tepid crowd slash home||
A more tepid crowd slash home field advantage hurts on the field as well as in recruiting. Hurts fans who enjoy tailgating for longer than 8am to 11am, and the environment is also less fun than games finishing at sunset or under the lights.
Sure, we should have a few noon games a year (MAC snacks, IU/Rutgers/Maryland, Ohio State in late November), but not throwing in a night game along with a couple 3:30 starts would be stupid.

We all read about the male modeling stuff, but add in that accent and I'd be very uncomfortable introducing Blake to any girlfriend or wife of mine. Mr. Steal Yo Girl times a billion.
Oh and he seems like a smart, confident, and composed guy too. Still one of the nation's best punters.

Pretty sure he's in his mid to late 20s. Guy's had some info in the past, but recruiting is too weird to believe this is for sure.
|17 weeks 4 days ago||Well two whole classes will||
Well two whole classes will have gone through four years at each school without playing each other by the time the series returns in 2016, it's hard to argue that we're barely in the same conference.

Sucks when the three best teams in baseball are in the same division

Haven't we all agreed that S&P and other advanced metrics are superior to counting stats? S&P reads:

All the way down to 8.5 already. Should settle at 7.5 or so.

More likely than not that Peppers is gone by then

|18 weeks 5 days ago||LSU may well be somewhat of||
LSU may well be somewhat of an outlier, but I mean since 1960 they are 231-61-4 at night in Tiger Stadium and 29-26-3 earlier in the day. Since 2000, they are 65-6 at night and 27-8 during the afternoon.
Sometimes the atmosphere doesn't matter because the road team is better, more prepared, or what have you. But night crowds are louder and more of a factor in tight games. See: UTL.
Edit: This may not matter for a seemingly atrocious Maryland team. But in general, arguing against night crowds being more formidable seems folly.
|18 weeks 5 days ago||The rankings are IRRELEVANT||
The rankings are IRRELEVANT at this stage. If Michigan were a 12-1 B1G champion, we would be in 95% of the time (there remains a remote chance that the SEC, ACC, B12, and P12 finish with undefeated champions). Winning all the games, however, remains a tall task.

Haven't heard of this before but love the idea. Could make the look of The Game even more iconic.
|19 weeks 16 hours ago||The superior chant is "It's||
The superior chant is "It's Great, To Be, A Michigan Wolverine". It's got a nice little rhythm to it and has pretty much the same message.
|19 weeks 1 day ago||Also both those road games||
Also both those road games were in Evanston in front of crowds that were viturally split. One was M00N and the other required the Dileo slide.
|19 weeks 1 day ago||Well we're 2-8 in our last 10||
Well we're 2-8 in our last 10 road games, and it's been since 2012 since we beat a team on the road by more than one score. It's incredibly dangerous to elevate expectations too much after just one excellent performance. Being a great football team is about consistent performance, and Michigan (in particular Rudock and the offense) has not proven capable quite yet. That being said, I do like our chances to reverse this trend and run all over the Terps, but by a scoreline more like 27-13 than the 48-3 romp it seems some might be expecting.
|19 weeks 5 days ago||I hate the Cowherd style of||
I hate the Cowherd style of sports radio. Take sports too seriously? Check. Hot takes to grab headlines? Check. Take calls from idiots and to create content that just end up in diatribes/rants? Check. Prediction radio? Check.
If you've never listened to Le Batard and Stugotz, they do none of this. They parody sports radio. They don't take it too seriously. Stugotz plays a caricature of the #hotsportstake guy for Dan and his producer/cohosts to lambast. This is what he does. He has no expertise, talks only from his gut, and is nearly always proven wrong. It's part of the show. This was NOT an ESPN personality saying Indy is still in play.
Carry on with your day folks.
